A Walk on the Juan de Fuca Marine Trail, #1 in Amazon Travel Essays

You can still get "A Walk on the Juan de Fuca Marine Trail", free today on Amazon.  It's done pretty well, on promotion, in the Travel > Essays and Travelogues and related categories, as you can see from today's Amazon screen-shots.

It has also sparked some interest in "On the Road with Bronco Billy", so you might want to check that out, afterwards.

The Juan De Fuca Marine is considered by many to be one of Canada’s finest hiking trails. It hugs the southwestern shore of Vancouver Island, between Jordan River and Port Renfrew for a distance of about 48 kilometres. Like its (perhaps) more famous neighbouring hiking trail just to the north, The West Coast Trail, it features both beach and forest hiking along a rugged coastline. The hiking is a nice test of one’s fitness, the views are spectacular, the wildlife (marine and forest) is plentiful and the people are friendly. What more could one ask for?

What follows is a journal of a five day trip, taken in early September of 2002. It is about 13,000 words in length (60 to 90 minutes reading), and contains numerous photographs of the trail. There are also sections containing a brief history of the trail, geology, flora and fauna, and associated information.
